We contacted Rajev Paul, ex-husband of Delnaaz, "Yes, Mehli uncle passed away last night, I am presently at Bakhtiyaar's place. He had a heart problem, and had undergone a bypass surgery long back. He was admitted to the Kokilaben Hospital few days ago after he complained of pain in his chest. His condition had improved in between, and he had got back to Bakhtiyaar's house too. Unfortunately, he had to be rushed again to hospital and was kept under ventilator support. The doctors had mentally prepared us to face this tragedy, as his condition had deteriorated yesterday".
The last rites we hear, would be performed today evening..
We offer our condolences to the family..
